París: Postdoctoral Position - Neurophysiology

French National Centre for Scientific Research

We are seeking to recruit as soon as possible talented and motivated post-doctoral fellows with experience in electrophysiology and imaging techniques that love science and are fascinated by dendrites, synapses and neuronal circuits.

The project aims at studying dendritic integration properties in neocortical neurons and to investigate the impact of those properties in shaping cell activity during relevant in vivo stimuli. The work will mainly focus on the primary somatosensory cortex and will involve both in vivo and in vitro electrophysiological approaches coupled to two-photon imaging. The overall goal will be to go from the identification of new cellular mechanisms to its relevance during in vivo sensory stimulation.

The position will be financed by an ERC grant from N. Rebola. For this position, we are seeking highly motivated individuals with experience in neurophysiology. Candidates with a PhD in Neuroscience or related discipline and demonstrated expertise with patch-clamp electrophysiology and/or imaging are highly encouraged to apply. 

The project will be conducted in the stimulating, highly multidisciplinary and international research environment of the Brain and Spine Institute (ICM, Paris, France) www.icm-institute.org.

Interested candidates should submit a statement of research experience and career goals, a current CV and 2 reference letters to Nelson Rebola by clicking Apply for this job
